What is women’s health?

  • Sleeping disturbances
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Other menopause symptoms
  • Thyroid disorders
  • High blood pressure

Early detection and treatment with the help of the Complete Rural Medicine specialists are the best ways to avoid bothersome symptoms and debilitating complications.

What happens during women’s health exams?

During women’s health checkups at Complete Rural Medicine, friendly providers welcome you and often complete the following:

Vital signs check

Your women’s health specialist weighs you and checks your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. 

Medical history review

During a medical history review, your Complete Rural Medicine provider asks questions about your personal and family medical history, medications, lifestyle habits, and symptoms you might have.

Physical exam

Your women’s health specialist completes a physical exam to evaluate your overall health and wellness. They check your breathing, heartbeat, eyes, ears, throat, neck, abdomen, and reflexes. Your specialist offers a pelvic exam to evaluate your reproductive organs, along with a Pap test if needed to screen for signs of cervical cancer or other health issues.

Diagnostics

Your specialist may order diagnostic tests that include tissue swabs, urine testing, blood tests, heart function tests, lung function tests, allergy testing, or STD testing. You may need a mammogram, bone density scan, or other imaging procedures.

Treatment

If you need treatment, a Complete Rural Medicine provider tailors a plan just for you. They offer further diagnostic testing, immunizations, birth control, prescription medications, minor procedures, and specialist referrals when needed.

How often should I schedule women’s health evaluations?

It’s usually a good idea to schedule women’s health checkups each year, or more often if your specialist recommends it because of a medical problem or disease risk factors. See your Complete Rural Medicine provider if you have questions about your health or develop alarming symptoms.
